Full description
Visit Florence with a comfortable day trip from Venice.  Depart in the morning from Venezia Santa Lucia train station and in just 2 hours you will reach the heart of Florence, the city of Renaissance! Led by a local professional guide, your day will start with a comprehensive Walking Tour, discovering the most iconic sights of Renaissance and Medieval Florence. You will first explore the Medici district, where you will admire the famous Medici Palace, built in the mid 15th century and the first residence of the powerful and proud family, the ancient San Lorenzo Church and the Medici Chapels, with their mausoleum. A few steps away, you will be breathless in front of the beauty of the monumental complex of the Duomo, with the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, the iconic Brunelleschi's Dome, the elegant Giotto's Bell Tower and the beautiful Romanesque Baptistery of San Giovanni. The tour then goes through the characteristic streets of the medieval district where you can also admire the imposing Church of Orsanmichele, a masterpiece of Florentine Gothic art. You will be led then to the picturesque Straw Market: don’t forget to rub the nose of the famous “porcellino” (little pig). Going on, you will find yourself in Piazza Signoria, one of the most beautiful squares in the world where you will be fascinated by the beautiful Fountain of Neptune with the imposing marble statue of Ammannati and by the sculptural masterpieces of the Loggia dei Lanzi.  Dominating the square, the majestic Palazzo Vecchio with Arnolfo's crenellated town. Following from the outside the spectacular elevated path of the Vasari Corridor, you will arrive at the romantic and picturesque Ponte Vecchio, the oldest bridge in Florence, and you will end this amazing walking tour admiring its renowned jewelry shops! Then, have a break and enjoy a delicious Tuscan Lunch in a typical restaurant located in the old town (if option selected, otherwise free time for lunch). The rest of the day is at your leisure: you can enjoy your free time going for some shopping and discover unique art crafts in the numerous Florentine artisan shops, taste local products in one of the restaurants on the first floor of the Central Market or just sit at the table of a historic café in Piazza della Repubblica.
